A bird with one body but many heads pecking itself to death

Tokugawa Ieyasu with help from the Jodo monks of the Daijuji temple in Okizaki, defeats the Ikkō-ikki at the battle of Azukizaka, 1564 by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi

A bird with
One body but
Many heads
Pecking itself
To death.  
- An unknown poet
